The founders of Long Island City graffiti mecca 5Pointz are not going down without a fight. Building owner David Wolkoff received city permission this week to tear down the art-covered warehouse, but the 5Points Aerosol Art Center filed a lawsuit seeking a temporary restraining order to stop the demolition. "After close to two decades of allowing them to do their work freely," said Wolkoff, "it's a shame... that they won't allow us to do our work freely." [NYDN; previously]
